  • Such a great place doing great things for the local wildlife. This is not a zoo, so don't go expecting a tourist attraction. This is a small place, where you can spend a little time learning about how they rehabilitate the gibbons here and in doing so, make a contribution towards this. Really knowledgeable American girl talking us through everything, and the Thai guy who was with us was great, too.
  • This is a wonderful place. disclaimer - this is not a zoo and you will not get to be up close with or interact with the gibbons in any way. This is for the benefit of the animals. Most of the tour is a very knowledgeable guide talking to us about the wildlife trade in Thailand, how they end up in the rescue center, gibbons' life cycles etc. and we do get 10-15 mins of looking at the gibbons from a distance at the end. In terms of excitement, it is minimal; there's no interaction with animals. But in terms of supporting a wonderful, important project and animal conservation, this place is stellar. I would come again to support them.
